From UBC Wiki

There are many ways you can make your courses and education practices open. Some the ways you can engage in open education practices include:

  • Attach an open copyright license to the resources you have created for your course (e.g. syllabi, presentation slides, assignment instructions, videos, etc.)
  • Upload your resources to an Open Education Repository for others to retain, reuse, remix, revise, and/or redistribute
  • Share your teaching and learning practices openly (e.g. planning notes for courses, reflections, etc.)
  • Create assignments for students to create and share their content openly (e.g. presentation slides, videos, case studies, research papers, etc.).

To share your content, you will need to learn about Copyright issues, how to license your content for reuse, and spaces to make your work openly available.

To work with students on open education resources, you will need to become familiar with privacy and intellectual property best practices.
